|This plastic bread tie can save your broken flip-flop|
I recently learned a very clever trick for a quick and sturdy repair.
Find a plastic bread tie, the square, flat type with a hole and slit. They are commonly found on breads, rolls and buns.
|Slide the button through the slit in the bread tie|
Push the strap button through the hole and then, on the bottom of the shoe, slide on the bread tie through the slit. Position the flat plastic piece so it prevents the button from pulling out through the hole.
This simple repair should last a long time, at least until you can grab another pair of those cheap flip-flops.
